Change starts with you. Always.

Every person has the power to drive change in their own life, to be the force behind action, to create something new. The reason that we don’t change is because we get comfortable with the status quo. We believe the story in our head that says it isn’t possible or it’s just not worth the effort. We get OK with just being OK.

The enemy of great, then, is not fear, inability or lack of opportunity. The enemy of great is GOOD — being “good enough” and settling for less.

If you want to create powerful, positive change in your business, don’t wait for perfect, just begin!

  • I’ve always been the person within my group of friends & family who always has her shit together. Organised, ambitious, always there for everyone.

    Somewhere along the way I forgot about myself. I was working harder and it was taking a toll on me physically and mentally. Without realising I parked my goals in storage to be there for everyone else. By the time I realised what was happening, I was stuck.

    Sarah reminds me to be kind to myself. She keeps me focused on me and my goals. We put strategies in place to keep me on track and discuss outcomes at every meeting. In between meeting she checks in to see how I am. Her guidance, business knowledge & enthusiasm to see me grow has helped me refocus & aided my confidence.

    I’m still on my journey, learning as I go, adjusting to changes I’ve made but this time I’m focused on my growth. Thank you Sarah

  • I just attended the 2nd Women in Telco and Technology facilitated by Sarah. Her style and insights were absolutely perfect for the event. Every insight she provided to delegates showed her level of experience, and talent for coaching, facilitating and growing people’s leadership. Excellent!

  • I have been working with Sarah as my business mentor for two years now. She has an ability to relate to her clients and their businesses, bringing real world examples to her coaching.

Sarah is empathetic and client focused and I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Her work ethic, contagious personality and people skills are outstanding.

    Garry Malcolm – Business Owner
  • Being a young professional and new into the corporate world, Sarah Pearce came along at the perfect time to further the training of our company, but also to work with me in a mentoring role. I can speak openly and frankly with Sarah as she has been in a similar corporate environment and knows how it all works. She has helped me look at my strengths and skills and my confidence has grown as we created a career path together. Having a coach independent of the immediate workplace is invaluable. It has really made me see my worth along with areas that I need to improve. I highly recommend Sarah’s coaching and training to professionals at all levels of the business community.

    Jasmine Rimmer – Corporate Executive
  • Sarah Pearce is one of those people who can start an entire industry group from scratch – as if it were all in a day’s work- or get up on stage in front of hundreds of people and have the audience hanging off her every word. I have seen both of these things first hand. I would like to think of Sarah as one of the ‘lucky ones’ who effortlessly influences, embraces and changes people or businesses for the better – but I know luck has nothing to do with it. There’s a ton of hard work, experience and dedication that goes in behind it all.
